Join us on December 7th for Breakfast with Purpose

Veterans - Your Missing Workforce

Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids invites you to join us for a morning of breakfast, networking, and training.

Looking for a motivated, hard-working, ethical employee? Try hiring a U.S. veteran. Veterans are disciplined team players with the skills your company needs. In this training, you will learn what the veteran workforce really looks like, what types of skills they have and jobs they want, and how to translate their unique military experience into relevant job duties. This training is for any HR professional or hiring manager that wants to learn more about why veterans make good hires and how to effectively engage and retain this valuable workforce. Michigan has one of the largest veteran populations in the country, so this is a workforce your company can't be missing out on!

As a Certified Veteran-Friendly Employer, Express Employment Professionals of Grand Rapids has partnered with the Michigan Veteran Affairs Agency to bring you this valuable training.
